First Look: Bernie Mac, Isaac Hayes, Samuel L. Jackson in Soul Men

I knew this movie was being made, but I wasn't paying a ton of attention to it, since there was nothing to check out yet. But now that I've seen a few clips of Soul Men, I honestly can't wait to see it. Sadly, these are now some of the final performances for both Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes, but the good news is that this movie looks great, and yes, soulful. It makes me happy for the two entertainers, may they rest in peace.

Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson star as Floyd and Louis, "two estranged soul-singing legends [who] agree to participate in a reunion performance at the Apollo Theater to honor their recently deceased band leader." Isaac Hayes appears as himself. In one brief clip, Hayes goes to wish Floyd and Louis luck backstage, and Jackson says, "Thanks, we're gonna need it," and then the clip ends right there. Of the three people in that scene, two died in the same weekend. It's a little spooky.

The video will just redirect you to MTV's site anyway, so click here to see all four clips of Soul Men.

It looks really great - it seems like the deaths are coming in the tens lately rather than the threes - too many.

i think that there was a lot of talk about this movie a while back because of the cast and now there's even more talk because of the cast. it's a sad situation to know that 2 of these men are no longer with us. we'll have to wait and see how that affects things. Samuel must really be feeling emotional when he sees this image.

Oh dear. If celebrity deaths really do go in threes, Samuel L. Jackson better watch himself.
